Prepared for the Future
As wastewater treatment and effluent requirements become more stringent, Garver provides clients with clear direction and economical solutions.

We help our clients make the greatest use of available infrastructure, design custom solutions to meet the established objectives, and ultimately convert effluent into a viable product and potential source of revenue.

In a project like this where you have everything go smoothly, it comes in under budget, and it comes in on time, it truly is a great example of the kind of working relationships that we like to have and the partnership that it takes with engineering firms such as Garver.
